20th of November is the international Transgender Day of Remembrance. We will be holding a memorial service on this day to remember those who have been killed simply because they are transgender. We will also remember those who have suffered abuse or killed themselves because their gender identity does not match that which they were assigned at birth. This will be a non-denominational service in conjunction with Oxford University's LGBTQ Campaign and LGBTQ Society, with music, speaking, a minute's silence in memory of our lost siblings, and the chance to light a candle and reflect together. All are welcome.
